Seminar: Millennials, In their Own Words Millennials: You have heard all the stories- Killing the housing market, Killing shopping malls... even avocado toast! Let's cut through the stereotypes with a panel of millennial IT professionals and hear their side of the story. This is your chance to hear their perspective, in their own words. Let's address the myths of the Millennials: lack loyalty to workplace, perennial job hunters, impatient for advancement. What environment are the Millennials most attracted to? What are Millennials looking for in their employers? What is a danger sign in placing a millennial to work at a company? How should an organization go about attracting Millennials in their work force? What signs should we look for that a Millennial may be 'looking'? -Expect a frank and honest conversation, with audience questions welcomed! Dinner: What's Wrong with Most Computer Defenses and How to Fix It Imagine two armies, one good and one evil, fighting a long war. The bad army is having success on the right flank of battle. In response, the good army puts more troops and resources on the left flank of battle or perhaps starts lining troops up vertically in the middle because they heard of a possible pending attack there. They do everything but put more resources on the right flank, and wonder why they are losing. This allegory perfectly describes most computer security defenses, which put the wrong defenses in the wrong places in the wrong amounts. It doesn't have to be this way. Learn how to use better risk and data analytics to craft a data-driven computer security defense, one that is more efficient and timely. Learn what is wrong with most defenses, how it got that way, and how to fix it. Taught by Roger A. Grimes, a 30-year computer security consultant and the author of 10 books and over 1000 magazine articles on computer security. You can fight a better fight. Come and learn how! • The Problems • How It Got That Way • How to Fix It • How to Implement a Better Plan • Examples
